    Link: MSNBCs Mark Halperin Calls Obama A Dick... - On national TV. He later got suspended for the slip of the tongue. To be fair, he seems like a bit of a smug dick, too.

    you have to realize, this is the channel that is supposed to be supporting him (the liberal media), thats why he got fired. I`m sure fox would get reprimanded for saying such, but they wouldn`t fire the guy over it.

    he`s not a "wimp" for apologizing.
    news reporters job is to "report" news not go name-calling.
    he messed up.
    he apologized it seems sincerely.
    over... next story

    I have to disagree with Gerry; the news is never unbiased, and I`d rather they come right out and say what they believe. His bias would otherwise be revealed in less obvious ways. He`s apologizing because old people get their news exclusively from the TV, and old people are easily offended. That, and of course it was unprofessional.

    Why is it news that someone called the president a dick?

    A part of it was the fact he called the President a dick. But most of it was about FCC rules regarding what words can and cannot be used on TV (excluding pay channels). When something that isn`t allowed is used, the user has to be punished per the lovely FCC dicks.

    Wow how uptight.
    If someone called our PM a wanker (which would be the same thing here as called President a Dick in Australia) - no one would cause a fuss - in fact the politicians themselves swear sometimes.

    "Can`t call Obama a dick... a dick is a part of a man."

    So is "A-s-s-h-o-l-e", but that probably shouldn`t be said either.

    And honestly, no one is saying that you can`t call Obama a dick. They are saying that you shouldn`t say it when your news organization relies so heavily on Obama`s constituents.

    thats exactly why i`m moving to australia!

    I remember when I travelled around Aus a few years ago, the police were having issues with complaints about people getting hit by officers. The chief of police said "if little johnny or jane come home with a bruised arm or leg because they were threatening one of -my- police officers, don`t come crying "abuse""

    To be fair to Halperin you should have played the whole thing unedited. He asked if the dump button was employed. He was then encouraged to speak his mind by the two host. After he said that the president was "kind of a dick," he was informed that the dump button didn`t work. Then the dick and dickett host started railing on him for saying what they egged him on to say after assuring him it was safe to say it.

    Why apologize? drat it, if you think the president is a puppet with a fist up his poo hole you have a right to speak your mind. Personally I wouldn`t have used the word dick, dicks have uses.

    RobSwindol-"They are saying that you shouldn`t say it when your news organization.."

    ...has an unholy love affair with Obama and will do anything to shed him in a good light, and ignore anything (and attempt to hide everything) that might make him look less than perfect.

    There, fixed it for ya.

    He said "I thought he was kind of a @#$% yesterday" that is different than saying i think the president is a #$%^, it implies scrutiny of his behavior for a specific time period, not him in general. I find the casual honesty refreshing.

    WTF? TV journalism keeps getting worse and worse. I can`t fcuking believe that a professional journalist doesn`t know the difference between how he should compose himself on TV and how he should compose himself shooting sh*t with his friends over a couple of beers. You`d think I`d be used to this kind of crap by now, but you know, I`m not.

    Obama is a loser and the only reason he was elected is because of all the brainless minorities who found it trendy to vote pro black. Voting isnt cool anymore and the minorities wont be at the polls in 2012 so we can finally get this jerk off out of office.
